Whitesnake have announced keyboardist Timothy Drury is leaving the band to pursue a solo career.
“For over seven years now I have been fortunate enough to travel the world, to play and sing my heart out and to share the stage with David Coverdale as a part of Whitesnake.
I’ve learned so much from David Coverdale and this experience, about following one’s heart, about being authentic, about never letting fear prevent one from pursuing one’s destiny.
More than ever, I see the value of what I can express as a composer and producer, photographer, songwriter, singer… as an artist. That is why I must now say my goodbyes to you all and take my leave to pursue some very important creative projects that have been brewing for some time now.
I am currently preparing for my first photography show in the Winfield Gallery in Carmel where I will be performing my cinematic music at the opening and projecting my images and video on screens. The event will be happening as part of the Carmel Art and Film Festival, October 6th through the 10th. http://carmelartandfilm.com/ ”
Whitesnake singer David Coverdale said…” We are sad to lose such a valued member of the band, but, we understand, support & sincerely wish Timothy every success in his solo career & thank him for a great, fun journey together.”
At this time the band are focusing on finishing the new studio album before seeking a replacement keyboard player.
